Carved Falcon Darleys Stud Farm Kildare.
This commission was to carve a “Falcon” out of a living Sycamore Tree. It was commissioned by Darleys Stud Farm Co. Kildare. The Farm is owned by Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum (Prime Minister of Dubai). His Highness has a keen interest in Falconry so the idea of a Falcon carved looking out and “protecting ” the estate seemed very appropriate.
